Take a look at the new Tune Squad kit.

LeBron James has given fans a brief look at the jersey he will wear when starring in Space Jam: A New Legacy.

The LA Lakers star, through a video video post on The LeBron James Family Foundation social media channels, gave fans a brief look at what jerseys will feature the highly anticipated sequel.

It’s not exactly a big bombshell, but it confirms that James will be suiting up for the Tune Squad just like Michael Jordan did before him back in 1996.

While the new, much less understated uniforms might not be to your taste, the rest of the movie seems to have a lot going for it.

For NBA fans, there’ll be star power in the form of LeBron’s Lakers teammates Anthony Davis and Kyle Kuzma, while Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Chris Paul, Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike will all feature in the movie at some point.

We imagine at least five of the above will have their talent stolen, potentially more if the Monstars (it’s the same plot right?) want to have something to come off the bench.

Don Cheadle will feature in the non-basketball portion of the cast, and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler is involved as a producer on the project.

It’s probably best not to get too excited about the movie just yet though, as it’s not due for release until July 2021.
